You have unfortunately quoted only part of the phrase, which is always an error.

The quote is from Horace: "nunc est bibendum, nunc pede libero pulsanda tellus", which means "now [we] must drink and now tap the ground with a light foot" - meaning dance. Note that the word is pulsanda not pulsando, which makes no sense in this context.

The whole quote is about living the good life, enjoying oneself and partying.
